The sun that pierced my aching heart
Sooner or later, will tear me apart
My black-eyed love will leave me bruised
Broken and battered, and feeling confused

Who am I today?
Keep the sun away

Rain down on freezing bones
Oh, I don't know if I can be left alone
Wind blows 'cross a dead man's eyes
Oh, and I
Think I'm coming to the end of the line

A captain on his sinking ship
King into battle, stiff upper lip
But I protect my covered pride
By staying defensive, denying the tide

Here's my final play
Keep the sun away

Rain down on freezing bones
Oh, I don't know if I can be left alone
Wind blows 'cross a dead man's eyes
Oh, and I
Think I'm coming to the end of the line

If I could erase you away
I'd erase you away
Wish I could keep the sun away
Keep the sun away

Rain down on freezing bones
Oh, I don't know if I can be left alone
Wind blows 'cross a dead man's eyes
Oh, and I
Think I'm coming to the end of the line

If I could erase you away
I'd erase you away
Wish I could keep the sun away
Keep the sun away

    My InterpretationThe song, to me, seems like it's about the narrator, who has gone through a terrible time with an abusive significant other (My black-eyed love has left me bruised/Broken and battered, and feeling confused), and that he is no longer a stronger person, but a more passive one because of the damage done to him (A captain on his sinking ship/King into battle, stiff upper lip). Not too sure about the "Rain down on freezing bones" verses, though...
